For more than 60 years we've been a world leader in radio astronomy: managing observatories, developing new technologies and revealing the structure of the Universe.
Radio telescopes detect and amplify radio waves from space, turning them into signals that radio astronomers use to enhance our understanding of the Universe.
We manage Australia's leading observatories for radio astronomy, used by astronomers from around the world, 24 hours a day, every day, to learn about our Universe.
CSIRO astronomers study cosmic objects, such as quasars, galaxies, gas clouds, pulsars and individual stars, using our own radio telescopes and other instruments.
We develop new technologies for our own and other leading international telescopes so that astronomers can see further into the Universe, and faster, than ever before.
Our astronomy education programs are supporting teachers and inspiring students to learn about science and the Universe.
